About Us

Jesus Street Calling

We are a Christ centered street ministry focusing in on Jesus as Savior and LORD who reach out to people in the streets with love. We believe Jesus sends us into the streets and by-ways to bring forth His healing power to the physical, relational and spiritual needs of individual people. We move from place to place wherever we are, searching for the hungry to feed and the cold to cloth, the building of relationship with individuals. We operate a discipleship program. We also want to help local believers be it a church, university students or any other organizations that we can train and provide experiential opportunities helping them fulfill this same great commission.

 

Our Founder

 

It all began with Charles attending an 8 day Seattle-City-Wide evangelistic team called Time to Revive in April 2013. The last night down at the bay while they all spread out to call the Holy Spirit into the city, Charles got the call to the homeless as he was praying.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN OUR TEAM AND HIT THE STREETS? POSITIONS AVAILABLE

Contact us if you are on fire for Jesus and have the desire to evangelize. But we also ask that you have a deep concern for the poor and downtrodden, a real concern that they are not hungry and without clothing, a desire to become their friends. 

fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2

Jesus IS The Reason

The whole ministry is focused on faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and what He has commanded us in words, deeds and ethics. We hope all who go out in the streets with us have a genuine experience in regeneration and reconciliation. While we are feeding and serving the homeless we ask all to receive Jesus Christ as their GOD, SAVIOR and LORD John 1:12-13. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name, children born not of blood, nor of the desire or will of man, but born of God.

Since 2013

After Charles received the call to the homeless in April 2013, he saw 3 men eating out of trash cans in Seattle and his heart was broken for what had come about in America. He spoke out loud with the third man, This should not be happening in America.” That was the beginning of his long journey of hard work along with many others who would join him in gathering resources, preparing resources, and distributing resources.

Jesus Street Calling

We Believe concerning salvation that:

A) We believe concerning salvation that:

  1.   God provides the glory of salvation and anything we do falls short. (Romans 3:23)
  2.   Sin is death. Jesus Christ is the gift of God and is life. So, we ask ourselves and others to make a decision for life. (Romans 6:23) 
  3.   The Father’s heart was and is loving sinners – He provided the atonement through Jesus on the cross. (Romans 5:6-8)
  4.   By grace we have been saved through faith; and that not of ourselves. It is the gift of God, not of our own works. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  5.   We confess Jesus as Lord and ask others to do the same, we believe God raised Jesus Christ from the dead- thus bringing all who will believe salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)

B) We believe concerning the Bible:

  1.   Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  2.   Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman who accurately handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

C) We believe concerning the Holy Spirit:

  1.   But you will receive power, the Holy Spirit having come upon you, and you will be witnesses for Me, both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
  2.   We proclaim, “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.” (Zechariah 4:6b) This is our motivation for this street ministry.

D) We believe concerning the Body of Christ:

There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; (Ephesians 4:4) so we come to churches in the same Spirit and hope- building up and supporting their ministries. 

E) We believe new believers should be Baptized:

We believe Christ does not just send us into the world to pray with people to receive Christ but we take seriously His own words: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)

Testimonials

"Touch the lives of people..."

Jesus Street Calling has given me a safe place to walk out my calling of loving people who are at the lowest of the low. It has allowed me to touch the lives of people who I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise, and to do so with people who truly walk in love.

Ayla Woodford

"Showing God’s love to others..."

I have been able to do the work of the ministry seeing people saved, delivered and getting their needs met spiritually and physically. It has been awesome showing Gods love to others.

Frequently Asked Questions

– What kind of donations do you accept?

We ask for food items not to be outdated and as fresh as possible, we need to be able to have parts salvageable for cooking. The fresher the better. If you are donating clothes, please have them washed and clean and wearable. We do take monetary donations or vehicles that we would see usable.

– What are the different ways that I can be involved with your ministry?

You can donate, gather donations, organize donations, prepare non cooked food, cook or prepare for it to be cooked. You could volunteer in the kitchen or come fellowship in the kitchen while we cook. Go out and share the love of God toward the whole person of the homeless individuals in which you may meet. We need good Christian music – so if you play or sing you are invited. Clean up is an area lacking and has much need. We always need prayer warriors before the Throne of Grace on our behalf. 

– How do I become a member?

Membership shall be extended to all applicants who give evidence of their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who subscribe to the Tenets of Faith and who consent to be governed by the constitution and by-laws of Jesus’ Street Calling.
